Now that the holidays are here people will be spending more time indoors entertaining.
Residents may want to include their pets in the merrymaking but that could mean trouble without a few elementary precautions.
San Antonio Animal Care Services suggests pet owners pay a little more attention to keep them comfortable with all of the holiday activity.
In addition, use baby gates to cue off their access to holiday restricted areas and give them some new toys and treats to keep them busy.
There are also some food dangers this time of year. For example, chocolate and raisins can be deadly.
